Publisher Description

Tales of love, loss, and betrayal are at the heart of When It Happens to You, the debut story collection from actress and author Molly Ringwald.

A Hollywood icon, Ringwald defined the teenage experience in the eighties in such classic films as Pretty in Pink, The Breakfast Club, and Sixteen Candles. Now the star of ABC Family’s hit series, The Secret Life of the American Teenager, and author of the bestselling memoir Getting the Pretty Back, Ringwald brings that same compelling candor she displayed in her film roles to the unforgettable characters she has created in this series of linked stories about the particular challenges, joys, and disappointments of adult relationships.

Here are stories that grapple with infertility and infidelity, fame and familial discord, in a magnificent collection that will resonate broadly with readers—from fans of Melissa Banks to Meg Wolitzer to Lorrie Moore.

Linardo ,

This is a stunning book

I really loved this book. I couldn't put it down. The characters pulled me in from beginning to end. The theme of betrayal, in all its unsundry manefestations in these people's live, was finely wrought in searingly honest and authentic depictions. These interwoven stories were entertaining, engaging and poignant without being morose. The way the author explored loss and redemption was inspirational. All that and the writing is superb-wow. Cannot wait for Molly R's next book.

I was pleasantly surprised by this book. I loved the characters and the in depth descriptions of their actions. I also loved the feelings that are described in the characters' thoughts. Very well done :)
